I’m glad that Christina Aguilera waited to jump on the I’m-a-singer-now-put-me-in-films band wagon and avoided a Crossroads situation. At the time Britney Spears played a young virgin with a karaoke voice that danced around in her underwear. At least Aguilera is going to try and to play a character.
The singer, known for her bright red lipstick and smoky eyes as much as her powerful voice was back on the set yesterday without the make-up and sporting a soft haired wig. Okay, so she plays a burlesque dancer so maybe it’s not the biggest stretch, but baby steps.
So what do we think of the deglammed Aguilera? I’m thinking this is one area that Cher could not give her advice. I don’t know if she can act, but am already to give her an award for putting away the lipstick around Eric Dane. This girl would primp herself with the entire Mac counter if she was just serving him fries.
Aguilera has also lost some weight from up to 14 hour daily rehearsals, which include dancing. The new mom is also hitting up the gym and slimming down by avoiding flour, rice and sugar which I don’t get because shouldn’t a stripper, er burlesque artist be curvier? No one wants to see this in a giant martini glass.
